EPIC Online Technology Meeting on Photonics for Earth Observation and Monitoring
Online Event

Photonics technology is rapidly advancing the field of Earth observation and environmental monitoring, setting new benchmarks for data accuracy, real-time analysis, and sustainability. In this EPIC OTM, we will explore how photonics is revolutionizing our ability to monitor and understand our planet. Topics will include the use of laser-based remote sensing for detailed topographical mapping, photonic sensors for ocean and atmospheric monitoring, and advanced imaging techniques for disaster prediction and response.
Whether you are a researcher, a solution provider, or a policy maker interested in environmental science, this event will offer an in-depth look at the current state and future potential of photonics in Earth observation and monitoring.
